Cable Management Part name

Cable Management Part name

Cable Management Part name

I'm having trouble finding this part on the internet.

It is a "U" shaped metal bar that is bent in many diffrent lengths and heights used for running wire. I need something to span floor beams about 12 inches and be 1 inch high. I have a customer that wants to run about 30 cat 6 cables in there basement without them being in a "bundle".

I see these in telecom rooms all the time, never thought to ask someone what the product name is called, and all I can think of is U shaped bars.

RE: Cable Management Part name

Common names: J-Hooks, cable (wire) hangers. Lots of types, sizes and methods of mounting.

RE: Cable Management Part name

Do you know of a good website that carrys "Everything". I need something more in lines with cable tray, without the tray. Just single bars to give the wire something to rest on. its like a "U" but 1 to 2 inch high and 12inch long.

Not trying to sound dumb, but it does happen from time to time.

Or wiring troughs. Cable racks. Cable tray.

Panduit has a grey (may be other colors) plastic trough, about and inch and a half across the base and multiple depths that I've used in various jobs.

I believe what you are describing is a d-ring.
